Powerteacher gradebook won't load on Google Chrome

Hello,

 

I am having an issue with a particular PC that Gradebook will not load in Google Chrome. I have tested the user on other devices and had success - the user even works on that PC on other browsers. On chrome the bouncing balls just continue forever.

 

I tried reinstalling chrome, clearing cache, everything I could think of.

 

On google I see several other districts have had the issue but none of the resolutions worked.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

If you are talking about PTG and Chrome 45 or greater on the Windows machine, I'm not sure it will work. That's one reason why PowerSchool introduced PowerTeacher Pro a few years ago.

They are using power teacher pro and clicking on the gradebook, sorry for the confused terminology. The application runs within the browser

Attached is the screen shot, it simply sits on the "Loading" screen forever. As I said this actually works on other browsers on the same PC, but I have tried uninstalling chrome and clearing the local caches.

 

Thanks

@pgouveia has the teacher tried a different browser on the machine or a different machine to make sure it's not the account but either device or browser?

It's absolutely the browser. It works on Edge on the same machine, but works on Chrome with a google admin mandated version on all other teachers devices. I reinstalled chrome, cleaned caches, etc, to no avail.

Hi @pgouveia,

 

Thank you so much for providing more information.  We would need to check if there is something that is causing Chrome from loading the grade book.  I recommend reaching out to the PowerSchool SIS support team to help troubleshoot this for you. 

 

Meanwhile, we can use this thread to ask other Community members to share any experience around this topic if they have faced a similar issue.

Was there ever a solution to this as I have some users that just got this problem this past week. PowerTreacher Pro does work on other browsers. Just not Chrome.

I never found a "magic bullet" fix - but some combination of running softwares like TFC, CCleaner and/or uninstalling chrome completely (And running those cleaners afterwards) seemed to do the trick - in conjunction with making sure windows was up to date.

 

We got a rash of them, struggled through resolving each one, and then just as mysteriously as it started it stopped...

 

 

Good luck!

Same issue here, I did find that it works with a guest profile in chrome though.  It could be an issue with my school managed profile.

Hi,

 

Is there a solution to this problem. I seem to not be able to load powerteacher pro on google chrome browsers using the url but when i use the ip address, it does load. 

 

When i try using safari or Firefox, Powerschool loads easily. I seem to have run out of ideas. Any tip will be appreciated.

Does the gradebook load in Incognito mode?

 

First, I would attempt to disable any extensions running in the browser 1 at a time to see if an extension is causing a conflict. If that is not the issue you can try this:

 

If that doesn't work, this has worked with a number of other chrome loading issues, but it requires changing some of chrome's default flags:

 

1. First, verify that the student has updated chrome.
2. In the Chrome address bar have the student type: chrome://flags
3. A new screen will load, have the student type SameSite by Default in the Search Flags box.
4. Change the Default option of  SameSite by Default Cookies to DISABLED
5. This will prompt Chrome to relaunch.
